With the challenging transition of COVID-19 and a change in vision for my final project, I have decided to create a piece of clothing from other clothing with the aesthetics of Harajuku and “the mode style” fashion. The combination of being expressive and confident in creating something new while maintaining a more monotone, minimalist approach parallels my own personal aesthetic of being energetic and confident but easygoing and relaxed.
Below are some inspiration images for my Harajuku sweatshirt.
I have drawn the design for what I’m hoping my final product to look like, sketching how I would imagine my sweatshirt will be. There will be different panels of different blue tones, and hopefully an embroidered design in the back!
I have also acquired all of my materials for this project- old clothing, sewing needle and thread, scissors, and a ruler. This project is going to be very interesting, as I am attempting to sew the final material by hand in hopes to sew over it with a sewing machine once that becomes available to me.
I’m interested to see how the final comes out. I really don’t have high expectations for the stitching and honestly don’t think this is the best approach for me to do, but given the situation of our world right now this is what seams most doable. If anyone has any other recommendations, I’d love to hear them!
Recent Update: I am ordering a sewing machine!! So hopefully this project will be a bit easier 🙂
